David Brabham says he is looking to give his ambitious Project Brabham venture its first track action during the latter stages of the 2015 World Endurance Championship season, but admits it is unlikely it will make it to this year's Le Mans 24 Hours as originally envisaged.

The revival of Brabham Racing through the 'Project Brabham' endeavour has raised more than ?250,000 alone from crowd-funding, with a view to taking the iconic moniker to the track at the Le Mans endurance classic in the LMP2 class.

However, though Brabham says the ACO have been wholly supportive of his plans in terms of an entry, he says the tight turnaround makes an appearance unlikely now.

"It will be very tight," David Brabham told Crash.Net. "Things will have to move really quickly if we were to make it to Le Mans. We have been trying to get ready to start in 2016.

"This year we will aim to get to two or three races at the end of the year, realistically after Le Mans, to get the team up, running and functional, doing races and comeback and grow."

The former Le Mans winner says it is important for him to ensure Project Brabham is developed before hitting the track, with a particular focus on securing necessary investment, but remains optimistic it will be present for a selection of WEC rounds in 2015.

Indeed, Brabham is particularly keen to develop the community aspect of the team to give fans an inside view on how the project is shaping up.

"Brabham Digital is the gateway to our race team to get all the access and knowledge," Brabham added. "That side is an ever-evolving beast and we want to engage with our community to understand what they like and what they think would work well.

"Managing that joint effort and people's expectations is the tricky bit because people expect it to happen initially and they don't see the development over two years. So instead we are offering them to become a part of the development and see it grow."
